ATHENS, Ga. — Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray has a bruised sternum and bruised knee, according to head trainer Ron Courson, the team announced.
Murray’s status is day-to-day as far as practicing this week.
“There’s no guarantee that he’ll play in the game. But we think there’s a good chance he will,” Georgia coach Mark Richt said.
Murray left Saturday’s Auburn game in the waning moments after taking a shot to the knee from Auburn’s Nick Fairley.
Richt called the knee injury, “something that we think is going to resolve relatively quickly.”
The sternum is bothering Murray more at the moment, according to Richt.
@BR Body Subhed:Green nominated
A.J. Green has been named one of 10 semifinalist for the Biletnikoff Award, given to the nation’s top receiver.
In seven games this year, the junior has 41 catches for 674 yards and nine touchdowns.
He missed the first four games of the season due to a suspension.
@BR Body Subhed:Supporting actors
For the third time this year, a player was named SEC offensive player of the week after playing Georgia.
This time it was Auburn quarterback Cam Newton, who shared the honor with South Carolina freshman tailback Marcus Lattimore.
Earlier this year, Lattimore and Arkansas’ Ryan Mallett earned the honor in consecutive weeks, each after playing the Bulldogs.
@BR Body Subhed:Practice pushed back
Georgia canceled its planned Monday practice, as there was rain forecast for the Athens area.
Typically, the Bulldogs hadn’t practiced on Monday of bye weeks anyhow.
The team is scheduled to resume practice today and Thursday.
They will have a lifting day and walk-through on Wednesday.
